March 2, 2020 – Nevada County Environmental Health Department is excited to host an Educational Workshop Series in 2020.  The Workshops are designed to provide guidance to all local food facility operators and to members of the public that are interested in learning more about the function of the County’s Environmental Health Department.

The March 19th workshop will feature an overview of the EH Department and our role in industry.  In addition, will cover some emerging topics like PSPS Events and how a local retail food establishment can prepare for future events.  The goal of the 2020 Workshop Series to create a networking connection with our Industry Partners to lead the way to a stronger unity of the EH Team with our Community Industry Partners and Public.
